Notes: Normally I put the notes near the very end of my review, but I felt it necessary to place it near the beginning for this book. Why, you ask? The author notes that the universe he created was originally going to come alive in the form of a comic book. I do not know how much of that comic book feel he put into this book, but I’m thinking there was just enough to bug me. It doesn’t matter if there are fun characters and action; I just cannot stay focused on reading the book. I don’t know if it is the writing style or what, but it quite possibly influenced my rating some.
If you like angels and supernatural beings, you could easily like this book. So please, don’t let my review influence you that much, if at all.

Nobody had believed them in the past, but present events back up their story of something inhuman visiting (and possibly living on) earth. Unfortunately, Jonas stops making appearances in the book (you will find out why when you read the book). So, continuing with Emma, her story intersects with the Ourea (Athos) once again, while at the same time she is interacting with “Descendants.” But this time, Athos teams up with Emma so that he can save his creator and father, Zeus.
